The San Diego Criminal Court Process
Most often, people arrested for a crime will have the opportunity to post bail or get released on their own recognizance (OR release). If the San Diego District Attorney chooses to press charges, the defendant is then expected to appear at their arraignment. In some cases, the defendant is not obligated to appear at their arraignment if he or she hired a private attorney representing them in court.
Those defendants who cannot afford to hire a private attorney to represent them, the court will assign a public defender. Defendants typically have difficulty getting in touch with their public defender over the phone because they are so overloaded with cases. For this reason, we strongly encourage persons to hire their own lawyer if at all possible.
After the defendant is formally charged, the prosecutor will most like offer a plea deal to the defense attorney for the defendant to consider. The defense attorney may counter-offer to present an option with more favorable terms for his or her client. In the majority of misdemeanor and felony cases, both sides will arrive at an agreement which might involve a substantial charge reduction or dismissal. This way, both parties can successfully avoid going to trial.
Sentencing in San Diego Criminal Cases
If, at the end of the case, the defendant should ultimately be convicted of the crime, the judge will then hold a sentencing hearing. This will happen whether the conviction came through a plea agreement or a guilty verdict at a bench- or jury trial. Depending on the case, the defendant might be able to go on probation and avoid incarceration. Customary sentencing terms include community service, payment of fines, going to classes or counseling, abstaining from drugs and alcohol, and avoiding future arrests.
